Our unwaivering commitment to our customers has kept us in business even during times of economic hardship, and we take pride in knowing our clients are satisfied with every job, even if that job is only changing a few lightbulbs.

Residential

Our dedicated team of electricians can design electrical plans for your new home or renovation, as well as repair or upgrade light fixtures, power distribution systems, heating systems, outlets, switches and anything in between. Our team can also pre-wire and install security systems, telephone systems, computer and cable networking as well as fire alarms and smoke detection systems.

Commercial

Our friendly and qualified office staff and employees are on hand to answer any questions regarding your current or pending contract work. Our bids are always competitive, and our electricians can plan and install switch gear, panels, generators, fire alarms, emergency lighting, devices, boxes, heaters, fixtures, photo controls, cable trays, fire sealants and other electrical components as required.

Apprenticeships

Olson Electric has proudly sponsored over 20 apprentices who have worked with our journeyman electricians and attended a four year program of in-school training, finally obtaining the Red Seal and BC Certification of Qualification from the BC Apprenticeship Program.

Divisions

Generators

When all the lights go out, our generators kick in, restoring your power in as little as 10 seconds – without harming your sensitive electronics. From our smallest generator all the way up to our 125kW unit, we provide you with the power to keep life going. Keep the game on. Keep the coffee brewing. And the moment alive. Whatever the weather’s doing doesn’t matter because Kohler generators give you the power to live confidently.

Solar Panels

Solar panels are typically installed on a roof but can also be installed on ground mounts and tracking systems. Solar panels are made up of individual photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) power. The system can be tied directly to the electrical grid (grid tied) or be used as a stand alone system for power generation with battery back-up power.

Data & Telephone Systems

For our business customers our trained technicians are qualified to install, upgrade and service Panasonic, Nortel and Meridian phone and voice mail systems. On the Sunshine Coast Westcoast Phoneman is the Panasonic Phone Systems representative. If your business is moving, we can relocate your phones and phone numbers for you.

For our residential customers Westcoast Phoneman can “add – a – jack” to your phone or Internet service and do repairs to existing jacks and wiring.

Fire Alarm Installations & Inspections

Using the most up to date products and technologies, Sunshine Coast Fire Protection will develop a system that will protect your property and buildings and maintain your fire safety and emergency plans.
